If your first choice of room is sold out: The number of single rooms is limited and they sell out quickly — often in the first minutes of registration. If your first registration choice is sold out, please contact us to be put on a waiting list. If you have a second choice, you may register for that choice and if your first choice opens up we will change your registration and adjust your credit card balance.

Commuter / RV / tent camper

Car and RV parking are marked on the Prindle Pond campus map. You can pitch your tent in the area on the map that says ‘Hilltop Campus.’ There are no hookups for RVs. You are welcome to use the facilities in Sage Hall, the cafeteria, and the Lodge and Center dormitories. The bathrooms in Lodge and Center are gender-specific and have showers.

If you plan to commute but want to stay closer to camp, one local choice is Southbridge Hotel.

Our camps are held on the two campuses of Prindle Pond Conference Center — ‘Hilltop’ and ‘Pondside.’

Prindle Pond Conference Center does not provide blankets, sheets, pillows, or towels. You must provide your own.

Should I Choose Hilltop Campus or Pondside Campus?

The two campuses are about a quarter of a mile apart, joined by an unpaved path on which you may walk or drive. If you have a mobility issue, a van will be available to drive you back and forth. Both campuses provide housing that is comfortable but not fancy. All dorms are “quiet dorms” — no jamming allowed after 11 p.m. Registration, meals, and concerts are all held on the Hilltop campus. Classes and evening jams are split between the campuses.

Pondside is the older campus, with dorms that are more rustic, and are priced lower than the Hilltop dorms. The dorms on Pondside have mostly double rooms with a shared bath down the hall. They also have a combined total of six single rooms with private (en suite) bath, which are priced at a premium and typically sell out quickly.

Hilltop is the newer, more modern campus with two dorms that have mostly double rooms, and also have a combined total of 6 single rooms. Every dorm room on Hilltop — doubles as well as singles — has a private (en suite) bath, which is priced at a premium and typically sells out quickly. The dining hall building does not have dorm rooms, and the 4 classrooms in the dining hall building are available for all-night jamming. All meals and the two faculty concerts take place on the Hilltop campus.
